I have pyTiVo working and it can see my new Bolt. If I hook up my old TiVo Series 2 (that the account is closed on and I am not paying for serivce on) should it be able to see it and transfer shows from it to my PC? The reason I ask is that I just hooked it up but pyTiVo doesn't see it.

No, unsubscribed TiVos have no network capabilities. Pretty much all you can do with them is play back existing recordings, or (in some cases) buffer live TV.

If you want to transfer shows off a TiVo, do it before you drop the subscription.
Bummer, I was afraid of that. I had dropped service from my Series 2 a few years ago. I just fired her up to see what recordings I had on it and there are a few hard to find shows I was hoping to transfer to my PC or my new Bolt. I know TiVo isn't reactivating Series 2 DVR's so I couldn't even subscribe for a month and get them transferred I guess. Oh well.
